Book Discussion: The Last Ships from Hamburg

Jewish history, maritime history, history of New York’s elite – something for everyone in the highly praised book that is Kol Shalom’s next book selection: The Last Ships from Hamburg: Business, Rivaly, and the Race to Save Russia’s Jews on the Eve of World War I. Written by respected maritime historian Steve Ujifusa, the book moves from the shtetls of Russia to the port of Hamburg to the mansions of New York’s Jewish and non-Jewish businessmen who facilitated the exodus of Jews from 1890 to 1921. All readers are welcome to participate; discussions are very informal.
